Drizzle Days

"I am sure it is a great mistake always to know enough to go in when it rains.
One may keep snug and dry by such knowledge,
but one misses a world of loveliness."
~ Adeline Knapp
The gray rainy days when drizzle and showers never cease, clouds block the sun and raindrops splash on blades of grass, coating them with shimmering beads of water; I love those days. In spring it heralds the wildflowers and weeds, small buds push their heads up above the grass; in the fall, it collects in tiny pools on curled leaves of red and gold. I try not to miss the beauty in these days.
